Digitalis purpurea Sugar Plum is dramatic, architectural and long flowering. Digitalis are instantly recognisable and make a statement all summer. Pink-purple, bell-shaped blooms with spotted throats densely pack strong, upright stems above semi-evergreen foliage in summer. The nectar-rich blooms are much loved by bees and butterflies, Digitalis are happy growing in borders and containers. Commonly known as Foxgloves, legend tells naughty fairies put the blooms from a Digitalis over the fox's paws to help him keep silent while he was hunting. If you look inside the blooms you can even see the tiny marks left by the fairies' footprints. Being a woodland plant, Digitalis purpurea Sugar Plum prefers to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Growing to an approximate height of 1.2m and spread of 45cm, Digitalis are short lived hardy perennial plants so don't forget to collect the seed, ready to be sown in subsequent years.
